    The death for George floyed is terrible and shouldn’t of happen, but rioting and raiding and looting stores isn’t justice

      That’s what I’m saying. How is destroying your community doing justice? How is becoming a criminal yourself doing any good to anybody?
      From what his friends and family are saying about him, he wouldn’t want this, not in his good name.

    • @Dot Salazar I think it has more to do with following behind the herd, regardless of whatever direction the herd is running.

      Rioting may not be justice or even the right thing to do, but it IS understandable and not surprising. How many black men have to die before we all stand up against this and say ‘ENOUGH’❤️

      Definitely a herd mentality. So destructive and uncalled for.

      Understandable? No, no it’s not.
      Though it is not surprising.
      Destroying your community will not only not bring him back to life nor will it stop the police brutality that we face ( I personally have faced)

    He is leaving the world. I think he is in the best place in the world now🙏💐

  10. Just so sad. I’m trying to understand why that cop didn’t have on his bodycam 🤔 His partner had on his. I thought they all were required to wear one. They all need to be charged with Malice murder, but you know the times we’ve always lived in, they’ll probably only see manslaughter.

  12. Rest in peace George..

    On the one hand, condemn the police violence in Hong Kong! On the one hand, killing ordinary people! The evil face of American liberty! Shameless! FALSE!

    It’s sad

    I really feel sad they way he passed away is unfair. 😞😞😞

    Its sad what happened i want to know the rest of the story why the cops where there in the first place

  17. If all this violence continues, the only thing George Floyd will be remembered for is inciting violence.

  18. I don’t know if that’s the truth but killing him is completely wrong. In the meantime black community needs to teach black people to cooperate with police people. Why can’t they get better education to accept the fact they get caught for crimes they commit and cooperate with cops simple and easy

  19. Amaud Arbrey, you’re finished as a frontpage outrage story. There is a new martyred boss in town
